Overview

Saving the world is easy for a superhero—unless you’re a fraud.

Jo Tanis is a superhero, fighting evil on the city streets, using her ability to feed off electromagnetic energy and fire off charges—and it’s all just a show. The Agency captures her and others like her when their powers begin to manifest, pitting them against each other in staged, gladiatorial fights. An explosive implant on the back of her neck assures she’ll keep right on smiling for the camera and beating up the bad guys.

When Earth comes under attack, suddenly the show becomes deadly real. Unable to deal with a real alien, the “supers” are falling in droves. Millions of innocent civilians are going to die…unless Jo can cobble together a team from among the fake heroes and villains the Agency enslaved. Including Hunter, who not only promises to show her how to deactivate the implants, but seems to know more than he should about how the mysterious Agency operates.

Forcing a rag-tag bunch of former enemies to work together is the least of Jo’s problems. The trick is determining if Hunter is friend or foe—and becoming the hero everyone thought she was before the world is destroyed for real.

Warning: Contains superhero in-jokes, Canadiana and large alien craft shaped like avocados. Really.

    I absolutely loved this book, it's well worth the read. I can't

    I absolutely loved this book, it's well worth the read. I can't wait to read the second one. I almost didn't purchase it because people claimed it was confusing, but it's a really great book. It was a tad disorienting how the author didn't differentiate her flashbacks from the past during the present, but if you pay attention to detail you will be able to catch on pretty quickly. There are great twists and turns in this book that had me hooked. I couldn't put it down and read the whole thing in one sitting. A+. I will definitely be reading more by this author.

    !...

    Amazing story...It was a tad confusing in the beginning, but it was very unpredictable with new twists and turns nearly every chapter. Jo had spent her life forced to participate in a lie, along with the other supers. They go on this adventure, extremely crucial to their lives and the survival of Earth. This book was hard to put down at night, but I thought the ending came far too soon. I will not intentionally spoil this book for others, so please consider reading this book.
